Overview

A cloud database for storing any app data.

The Appery.io platform provides a cloud database to store any app data. The database is a NoSQL database in the cloud. This means you connect to the database from the app via a simple REST API. You can use the database to store anything your app requires, for example:

  • Users;
  • Customers;
  • Orders;
  • Locations;
  • Inventory;
  • Binary data (images);
  • And more...

What database?

Appery.io database is based on MongoDB version 3.2.11.

Quickstart

If you are just starting with the Appery.io platform and with the database, try one of our Quickstart Tutorial.

Connecting to Database

Appery.io Database is running in the cloud this means that the app will connect to the database via REST APIs. For example, to get a list of users, you would invoke an API. If you need to update or create a user, you would also invoke a REST API.

Database API

Complete Database API.

Server Code Integration

The Database is also integrated with Server Code. Server Code provides JavaScript-based API to access and work with the database.
